WELCOME to Wednesday March 7, 2018.    

Many a Funny Word – Spoken in Jest…. 
The longest word in the English language. According to folk-lore Antidisestablishmentarianism is the longest word in the dictionary, it means being against separating church and state.
However, floccinaucinihilipilification,  a word found in the Oxford English dictionary since 1800, is one letter longer.  Strange but true, this word means estimating that something is worthless!

While the Oxford English Dictionary has even longer words such as
pneumonoultramicroscopicsilicovolcanoconiosis, these are compound technical words and many people discount them.

The longest one-syllable word in the English language is ‘screeched.’
We think that “Almost” is the longest word in the English language with all the letters in
alphabetical order. Let us know if we are wrong!

The word “listen ” contains the same letters as the word “silent”. The  longest place-name still in use is  Taumatawhakatangihangakoauauotamateaturipukakapikimaungahoronukupokaiwenuakitanatahu,
a New Zealand hill.

Los Angeles’s full name is ‘El Pueblo de Nuestra Senora la Reina de los Angeles de Porciuncula’ and can be abbreviated to 3.63% of its size, ‘L.A.’

The name for Oz in the ‘Wizard  of Oz’ was thought up when the creator, Frank Baum, looked at his filing  cabinet and saw A-N, and O-Z, hence ‘Oz.’

The longest common word that you  can type with just the left hand is probably ‘Stewardesses’, however  there is the obscure but longer: ‘Aftercataracts’.  With the right hand  the longest word is Phyllophyllin.  (Lolypop comes close, but as Groucho Marx would say: ‘no cigar’)

To ‘testify’ was based on men in the Roman court swearing to a statement made by swearing on their testicles.

The combination ‘ough’ can be pronounced in nine different ways. The following sentence contains them all ‘A rough-coated, dough-faced, thoughtful ploughman strode through the streets of Scarborough; after falling into a slough, he coughed and hiccoughed.’

The only 15 letter word that can be spelled without repeating a letter is uncopyrightable.

Facetious and abstemious contain all the vowels in the correct order, as does arsenious, meaning ‘containing arsenic.’

That’s my story and I’m sticking to it!  Have a wonderful Wednesday people,

and whatever you do, don’t forget to LAUGH IT UP! Peace I am outta here, Eucman!

Jimmy: ‘Hey, Mike! How’s your new pet fish doing? You told me he was really
something special.’ 
Mike: ‘To tell the truth, I’m really disappointed in him. The guy who sold him to me said I could teach him to sing like a bird.’ 
Jimmy: ‘What? Let me get this straight… You bought a fish because you thought you could teach him to sing like a bird?’ 
Mike: ‘Well, yeah. After all, you know, he’s a parrot fish.’ 
Jimmy: ‘Now listen, Mike, while you might be able to teach a parrot to sing, you’re
never going to get anywhere with a parrot fish.’ 
Mike: ‘That’s what you think! It just so happens this fish CAN sing. The thing is,
he’s terribly off-key and it’s driving me crazy. Do you know how hard it is to tuna fish?’😐
